1. Draw a flow chart of the cookie-making process

2. How long will it take to fill a rush order of 1-dozen cookie?

It will take 26 minutes to fill a rush order of 1-dozen cookie. (I revise my chart to 4 cycle orders) 3. What is the cycle time? How many orders can you fill in a night (4-hour period)? Does your answer depend on the size of the order, 1-dozen, 2-dozen, or 3-dozen? 1-dozen orders: The cycle time is 10 minutes. The first order of 1-dozen cookies will take 26 minutes, and each 10 minutes for another 1-dozen cookie order. (4*60-26)/10=21.4 plus the first order, we can make 22 orders of 1-dozen cookie fill in a night.

2-dozen orders: The cycle time is 20 minutes. The first order of 2-dozen cookies will take 36 minutes, and each 20 minutes for another 2-dozen cookie order. (4*60-36)/20=10.2 and plus the first order, we can make 11 orders of 2-dozen cookie fill in a night.

3-dozen orders: The cycle time is 30 minutes. The first order of 3-dozen cookies will take 46 minutes, and each 30 minutes for another 3-dozen cookie order. (4*60-46)/30=6.47 and plus the first order, we can make 7 orders of 3-dozen cookie fill in a night.

4. What is the difference in labor (both you and your roommate’s time) per dozen among 1-dozen, 2-dozen, and 3-dozen orders? 1-dozen orders: Me: Wash and Mixing 6 minutes + fill the tray 2 minutes = 8 minutes +my roommate: Setting timer and putting in the oven 1 minute +Packing and collecting money 3 minutes = 4 minutes, and 12 minutes in total. 12mins/per dozen 2-dozen orders- Me: Wash and Mixing 6 minutes + fill the tray 4 minutes = 10 minutes +My roommate: Setting timer and putting in the oven 2 minutes (2 times) +Packing and collecting money 5 minutes(packing 2 times) = 7 minutes, and 17 minutes in total. 8.5mins/per dozen 3-dozen orders- Me: Wash and Mixing 6 minutes + fill the tray 6 minutes = 12 minutes +My roommate: Setting timer and putting in the oven 3...
